Discovering new music, albums, and artists can be hard, considering how much it all arrives in overwhelming waves on a weekly basis.
Don't worry, because BET.com has you covered with our New Music Mondays column. Built with you in mind, you won't miss out on the latest sounds thanks to us sifting through them to make things easier.
Curated by Wongo Okon, you'll find a familiar (and not-so-familiar) array of artists, emerging music, and a diverse range of genres as well.
So, without further ado, here are 10 new records that you should kick off your week with — led by Polo G, Arin Ray, and Vory.
Polo G — “Distraction”
Polo G accomplished a few firsts in 2021. He got his first No. 1 album with Hall Of Fame and topped with singles chart with “Rapstar.” There’s no telling what new ceilings Polo G might reach this year, but on his journey in doing so, he kicks things off with “Distraction,” his first new record produced by CuBeatz and Southside of 2022.
Arin Ray — “Bad Idea” feat. Blxst
At long last, Cincinnati singer Arin Ray is back in action with a new album. He returns with Hello Poison, his first full-length release since 2018’s Platinum Fire. A highlight from the project is “Bad Idea,” which features South Central’s own Blxst, as the two join forces for some West Coast magic about the risks of new love.
Vory — “Not My Friends”
The unique aspects of Vory’s artistry make him one of today’s young exciting artists. At just 24 years old he’s laced collaborations with Kanye West, Meek Mill, and more. Now, he returns with his third project Lost Souls and it’s truly an impressive body of work. “Not My Friends,” which alludes to Vory’s skepticism with the world around, is one example of great production and artistry on the album.
Lakeyah — “Mind Yo Business” feat. Latto
Jean Deaux — “Ease Up” feat. Masego
P-Lo — “Good” feat. Larry June
There’s nothing like some West Coast fire and that’s exactly what P-Lo and the Bay Area’s Larry June bring on “Good.” Together, they acknowledge the haters’ prayers towards their respective downfalls, but unfortunately for the opposition, the universe has these two hustlers-turned-rappers blessed and highly favored.
Sada Baby — “2 Freaks” feat. Snoop Dogg
Reggie Becton — “Call” feat. Nana
This fall, Reggie Becton will celebrate the first anniversary of his California project. With that being said, he’s not waiting till then to return with new music. Becton and rapper Nana arrive with “Call,” a warm record that contemplates reaching out to that special someone who you’ve disconnected with
Denzel Curry — “Walkin (Remix)” feat. Key Glock
Michael Sneed — “Sometimes Blue” feat. Grandbanks
